    Beautiful restaurant at a beautiful resort! Our hostess and waiter were both exceptionally friendly and attentive. The truffle cheese bread was amazing. I had to get them to take it away so we didn’t eat it all. We ordered a salad with goat cheese and it was also outstanding. Very fresh. We were a little underwhelmed with the Chilean Seabass. Cooked very well, but not a great portion and didn’t really pick up the flavors that were listed on the menu at all. A little disappointing at $46. It was an anniversary occasion and the staff provided a nice dessert for us. Overall really good experience. Would just order a different main course next time.

    The food and service is outstanding, and our server Anthony is always a pleasure each year we return. My only concern is that that your menu still does not accommodate allergy concerns.

    We loved everything about our dinner, service and atmosphere. There was only one issue and that is they do not have appropriate handicap access. One of our family members was taken down a back elevator while they rest of us climbed down a long staircase. During dinner that same family needed to use the bathroom and needed to by taken by a service member to a back elevator alone and back again. This was embarrassing as it made him feel even more inadequate as a person. This needs to be corrected for future handicapped people.

    My husband and I ordered the sirloin, sweet potatoes and asparagus but when the order came out we received mashed potatoes and broccoli. When we asked about it the server stated we haven't had sweet potatoes and asparagus in a while due to delivery issues. I am giving a 3 because the steak was great, but you either change your menu or the server should've told us that when we ordered. Drinks were very watery too. The ambiance was very nice with a black swan and different color fish swimming around as we ate.

    I wish I could give a review of this restaurant but I can’t. They took my reservation, there is nothing on their website. THEY ARE NOT OPEN. They are remodeling. Which I had known this before wasting my time and money ( taxi) going there. How about you update your website.

    Janet our server was fantastic. Food took wayyyyy to long to come out. Tried to order 3 different bottles of red wine that were on the menu but unavailable. Janet finally brought out 2 bottles they did have and had us choose. They didn’t have certain food items as well. Food we were able to get was very good. The whole dinner took almost 3 hours with all the wait.

    The Ruinas Del Mar Restaurant was close and they had a small restaurant that served breakfast that would close at 11:00 am. My reservations just happen to be at 10:00am if I had a later seating no Brunch would occur. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED with the Hyatt . The service at the other restaurant was not good nor the food.

    Food was terrible. My friend was sick all night. We didn’t get to enjoy the Aruba resort because she was sick in the room all night. Management didn’t seem to care much. Asked only if we went to the doctor, when we complained. The famous Black Swan never came in the water.

    Food choice was limited and poor. The bacon for example was card board and the fresh salmon looked sick, the entertainment being for breakfast was too loud. We had a 2 and a half year old with us that was charged as an adult. We had a parking ticket when we asked a waiter if it can be validated, he answered no, whilst we ask another waitress she told us it can be validated at the front desk.
